The optimal ratio carbohydrates

The optimal ratio of carbohydrates

The absorption of carbohydrates via the intestinal epithelium is achieved by transport proteins. Glucose is transported by a sodium-dependent glucose transporter 1 (SGLT1). This protein becomes saturated with a high glucose intake of approximately 60g per hour. GLUT5 is another transporter that transports fructose. If both transporters are used simultaneously, it is possible to absorb…
